    He's lucky it exited above his knee instead of ripping through it.

    things just tend to happen

    he really says that. and calls it a ND

    anyone notice if his bracelet said Department of Physiology or Psychology?

    --how about moving faster than your training warrants
    --how about failure to know your equipment
    --how about not putting your finger on the trigger till you have brought the muzzle in line with the target.

    he is FAIL

    here we have heard from others that 2+2=5
    so the group of 'in denial' grows larger. though it is said that there is strength in numbers,
    i can but hope that does not apply with these peoples.

    Wow! that's about I can say. He was and is extremely lucky, it could've been a whole lot worse.

    Just because it hasn't happened to you doesn't mean it will.

    right.......can you say that another way please.
    as the intent is sort of there, clarity is not.

    and actually----NO

    as i am into my 5th decade of handling and teaching with guns and other dangerous items,
    if it was that i was a careless person, or one who entertained the thought that "well, it happens" than it would already have happened. since it has not, I'm gonna bet my life, and those around me, that it will not

    No good at all. I am glad that it the injury did not end up being a lot worse than that. I applaud the guy for recognizing that it was a negligent discharge and for not trying to call it "accidental discharge", like many people had done. He recognizes that it was his own fault and he does not try to blame the holster or something else.

    Shooting is not a safe sport. It is only because of ruthless attention to detail accidents are not more common.

    Do not be fast. Be deliberate and without wasted motion - then you will be fast.

    Really good shooters are like robots. They do the exact same thing, over and over again in sequences till they are doing that series of movements very fast...but it's a progression, not a "step into fast".

    Kudos to the guy for his candor, but - he fails to acknowledge the root cause of his ND was failure to observe Rule Three.

    I also take issue with his "things happen" explanation.

    I've heard of the famous words "it'll never happen to me" said countless times.
    Seriously, countless times. I would not judge so much of this person's character by a single video.

    But I do agree saying "well, it happens" leaves much unattended.

    OUCH! Have to follow the rules, all the time. At least he admits it was his fault.

    sometimes in life ( or immediately proceeding death) there occurs an event that is so extreme as to be of "this defines the person"

    certainly it does not define the entire person--but a part that is very important to the whole.
    much like "Outside of the killings, Washington has one of the lowest crime rates in the country,"
    --Mayor Marion Barry, Washington , DC." (thank you dukalmighty)
    when put in context--it rather negates much that may be good. personally, id rather be robbed than murdered.
    personally id rather be always aware of my gun than making movies about my mistakes.

    He says that he doesn't blame the holster maker. Well, OK. But I'm not feeling real good about a holster that requires you to press your index finger down around the trigger area - which is what appears to have led to this ND.

    Drawing from retention is dangerous because of the risk of doing exactly what happens in this video. Train to prevent it.

    One thing I picked up on - He said he had been practicing with THAT holster and his Glock. Then he changed over to his 1911. This reinforces my belief to stay with one platform for Defensive Carry. I do appreciate this guy posting. It does make me think.
